The program committee has been working vigorously to create a program that will be both valuable and informative. With so many sessions to choose from it may be difficult to choose. View or print the detailed agenda or use our mobile app, "NCGIS," to start planning your schedule today.

We've Gone Mobile

Mobile devices and social media. We know you love them. That's why we created a mobile app just for you. The mobile app will turn your mobile device into a NCGIS2017 Batman utility belt. The app will provide you with everything you need to take full advantage of what the conference has to offer. You can view the schedule, see a list of speakers and attendees, and use the map to get a list of sessions for each meeting room. That's not all. With the app, you can also post comments about sessions you attended, set up a meeting with a colleague, get a list of nearby restaurants, and even call Uber for a ride.

Poster Session

Have a cool GIS poster, website, or application you would like to showcase? Be sure to enter it into the poster session contest. Your peers will have the opportunity to admire your hard work and you can also score some GISP credits in the process.


Another great conference has come and gone. With so many sessions and speakers we know it's tough to attend them all.

We now have the conference presentations online. Enjoy!

About the Conference

30 years of advancing GIS in North Carolina
Come join us!

Since 1987, the NC GIS Conference has brought together professionals from across the state to share in their experiences and learn about current trends and technologies affecting the GIS community. Attracting over 1000 registrants in 2015 and averaging 50+ vendors for the last 28 years we expect another fabulous event.

The conference depends on a number of committees that are comprised of volunteers to help plan and run this two day event. Without their participation it would not be the success that it is. Get involved! If you are willing to lend a hand then all you have to do is contact us . We can always use more help.
